President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva (PT) said this Thursday (Dec 7, 2023) that he was personally sad about the end of the mandate of Argentine president, Alberto Fernández, as the two have a friendly relationship. Lula gave the statement at the opening of the Mercosul (Southern Common Market) Summit.
